Delaney Meets Disney Princesses

Delaney ready for Disney

“ It was a trip of a lifetime and I know she and her brothers will remember this forever.” ”


- Delaney's Mom

Delaney is a spirited six-year-old who lives in Farmersville, a small town south of Springfield. She is a tough and adventurous girl who loves to play with her four older brothers. Delaney also loves to play tea party with her princess dolls Cinderella, Belle, Ariel and Aurora.

Delaney was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Despite the many doctor appointments and treatments Delaney has been through, she remains positive. Delaney told Make-A-Wish that she wished to meet her favorite Disney princesses so she could have tea and dance with them! The excitement and hope leading up to the trip brought many moments of joy.

Recently Delaney‘s wish came true. She and her family traveled to Disney World for a week of adventure. “Delaney has not stopped talking about her breakfast with the princesses and the time she spent with Ariel,” Delaney’s Mom said. “It was so wonderful how they all took the time to make her feel so special. It was a trip of a lifetime and I know she and her brothers will remember this forever.”
